4-H Page Day in Augusta – January 29, 2019

UMaine Day at the Legislature, Tuesday, January 29, is approaching.  It’s a day where Cooperative Extension gets to highlight our awesome programs, and 4-H is one of the best! Since legislators like to see 4-H members from their districts, 4-Hers (age 13 or older) are encouraged to serve as Honorary Pages. The Maine 4-H program has up to 30 slots for Honorary Pages.

What does a Page do?

Legislators are constantly communicating and making decisions while in session and pages make that communication possible. Pages hand out information packets or place the paper information on their desks. Pages will also run communication and documents directly from legislator to legislator.

If you are interested in serving as a Page, please contact Diana at 207.622.7546 or diana.hartley@maine.edu.

We would love to have Pages from all over the state represented. Slots, representing different state senators and representatives, will be filled in the order they are received, but the final deadline is January 20, 2019. If the slot for your legislative district has been filled, your name will be added to a waitlist in the order it is received. If you are leaving a message, please be sure to say, “I am interested in serving as a 4-H Page at the Legislature on January 29.” Your slot will be reserved if you leave this complete information:

  • Full Name
  • Age
  • Mailing Address
  • County
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address (this is how we will confirm you)
  • Name of your School
  • Name of your 4-H Club
  • Name of your Maine State Representative
  • Name of your Maine State Senator
  • Name of your Adult Chaperone

4-H Honorary Pages will be in the Capitol from 8:30am– 3:00pm. A parent or 4-H volunteer must provide transportation and chaperoning. If you have questions, please let Alisha know at alisha.r.targonski@maine.edu.
